    Been a miniute! I havent been on much for a while, i try to keep myself busy. Started investing into some actual analog gear and really working on mixes, levels, routing, all that s--- nobody cares about lol. I got a new Tube Preamp and Channel strip and an Empirical Labs Distressor compressor and its Made an outlandish difference in the Vocal tracking process, But I'm still working on finishing up Bullet Journal (its been so godamn long) but this is something that's coming out on streaming platforms the 12th but i have a Soundcloud link for people on here. It has a beat switch, which gave me alot of issues while mixing everything down to the stems and keeping levels balanced, but I think I did a pretty solid job. This was the first song i really ever mixed vocals to the Track outs for but ive been getting alot of practice since this song as im working with those exclusively now. / Rant. @Ricky and @Winter have already herd this but Winter herd a rougher mix.
    @CreativeSXN @ItsPwizz @FiveOh1 @gdot @Boos @hargydon i cant remember all who i used to tag. But itll also be on spotify/Apple/Tidal/ every fkn where the 12th.

    I disagree I think you’re well on your way, the lyrics are already up to standard!

    Beat switch was nice too, keep at it bro.

    @MichaelsMad dope af as always bro. Probably your best work yet. Great mix, and beat too. But the flow, bars and syllables top notch. Love the hook, definitely my favorite one of yours.

    I don't know why I couldn't see it before I reloaded. @MichaelsMad you should work more on the cover art. Different fonts too

    Wish I could do hooks like that song lol. But when I try and layer all my vocals makes me realize more how much I cant sing. Anytime I do layered hooks I end up with Some SchoolBoy Q hooks. Now I wanna listen to "f--- LA"

    It's hard finding the balance between the handwriting/Scrap paper/ journal, theme I'm going for and a professional touch lol. I have made my handwriting into a font but, I need to re do it. I try to just stay in the writing/ recording/ mixing state of mind before I worry about promo and artwork, which was counter productive seeing as I'm putting something out. Idk if this one is gonna make the album though. I'll have to see how some of these others turn out. You do commission work though? I have ideas just not the best at executing them.
